Anthony Taylor For The First Time Leaves Chelsea Fans Happy After Brentford Game

Ahead of their game versus Brentford, Chelsea fans were left talking after the referee for the game was revealed and it was non other than Anthony Taylor.

Chelsea fans have very little love for this man who has in recent years gave them painful experiences with harsh decisions which they felt were uncalled for.

Their recent encounter was the clash at Anfield between the blues and Liverpool where Taylor gave a straight red card to Reece James for a handball.

With all those sad memories, Chelsea fans even had a petition signed up by thousands to have the referee banned from officiating any of their games.

That seemed to have played a role in as today Taylor was quite unusually linient and let them get away with fouls while he even did not call the VAR to review a penalty incident when Chalobah fouled Toney only for the assistant to wrongly give a wrong offside call.

Below is what Chelsea fans had to say;

Joshua Rey: Mendy stole the three points for Chelsea. What a goal by Chilwell too. Attack could have been better. The last 25 minutes took years off my life but The Blues are still top of the league. Oh, and Anthony Taylor didn't make a bad call for once. #CFC

Destina: anthony taylor the petition definitely went into ur head lmao

Tim: Anthony Taylor has behaved so well today. He must be disgusted with himself 😂

Gerald Mcdaid: What a performance from Mendy and good to see that Anthony Taylor has taken over from Martin Atkinson as Chelsea's 12th man #BRECHE

CFC Army: Is it only me who thinks Anthony Taylor was being slightly lenient to us this match. It’s about time! 😂

Sachin: Massive 3 points… Mendy, Chalobah and the bars saved us. And for once we saw Anthony Taylor without an agenda..
